Shubert: The guardian newspaper has confirmed they paid for Miranda's flights but it's not clear if Miranda was asked to deliver any documents or information. According to Greenwald, Miranda spent nine hours answering questions only about Edward Snowden and the NSA, no terror-related questions. Whatever the reason, Brazilian diplomats are now expressing their outrage and some British members of parliament are

(At White House Briefing) Yellin: can you state with authority that the US government has not obtained material from the laptop that British authorities confiscated from Glenn Greenwald's partner or from any of his personal devices they also confiscated. Earnest: I'm just not in a position to talk to you about the conversations between British law enforcement officials and American law enforcement officials. Yellin: so you can't rule out that the US has obtained this material? Earnest: I’m not in the position to do that right now, no. Yellin: Was the White House consulted

Yellin continued: or given a heads up in advance? Earnest: There was a coNSA, there was a heads up that was provided by the British government. Again, this is something that we had an indication was likely to occur but it's not something that we've requested. Yellin: now, briana, numerous follow ups questions, the white house clarified --that they essentially were notified by the British government once Miranda's name appeared on a list that he was flying on an airline and that the Brits planned

Yellin continued: to detain him. The US government was told by the British. We haven't been told who in the US government was told and whether it was directly a call to the White House but clearly they knew in advance. Keilar: and Jessica, it’s pretty interesting because the US here not condemning this action, as you mentioned, very careful not to do that. I think it makes a lot of people wonder could this kind of thing happen here? Do you have any sense to the answer to that question? Yellin: good question.

Yellin: And the answer is yes. The US can do something similar at US airports and boarders. Government officials can check bags, as we all know. Can ask people to turn on their laptops and can even take them and confiscate them ton for a period of time. Our rules require that our government officials return that after a certain number of days or weeks. Now that all depends on what they find on those laptops or devices. If they find something suspicious, of course they could keep them indefinitly and call them evidence. Bottom line is one former official for the DHS, we never have less personal freedom than when you're crossing an international border. Keilar: Interesting. So it could happen here.

Maddow: shooting and producing her films all over the world, Laura Poitras, the documentarian, she has been busy. But has she has been doing a lot of traveling for her work, for her films, she has found that she gets stopped a lot at the airport and not anything like what you might get stopped for at the airport for. She's been stopped dozens and dozens of times at the airport for interrogations that sometimes last for hours. Miss Poitras started taking extraordinary precautions with her data using encrypted e-mail, working on computers that were not connected to the internet. Stashing her notes in safe deposit boxes. She kept on, though, getting stopped at the airport.

Maddow: Starting in 2006, she was detained and questioned like that more than 40 times. In April of last year, salon.com wrote about what had been happening to Laura Poitras as she tried to travel, and then finally, finally after that public attention, and that article from salon.com, the airport interrogations of Laura Poitras stopped. She found, okay, she can get on a plane again, more or less like the rest of us. The author of that article in
